Compare custom field dates in behaviour ? Edited

I am desperately trying to compare 2 dates from custom fields in the issue screen, but nothing happens and I can't find the problem in my code:

def StartDateField = getFieldByName("Start date")

def EndDateField = getFieldByName("End date")


Date StartDateValue = (StartDateField.value as Date)
Date EndDateValue = (EndDateField.value as Date)

if ( StartDateValue.getTime() > EndDateValue.getTime() ) {

 EndDateField.setError("EndDateValue cannot be earlier than StartDateValue")
} else {



Your help will be much appreciated!

Convert the both date in yyyymmddmmss and compare it.

covert like 201912191530 and 201912180930 and compare.

how to convert ?  after convert , Is it compared as a string?
